This young, Grammy award-winning US fiddle and banjo trio from North Carolina are one of the few remaining African-American string bands and draw on their state's vibrant musical heritage to play high-energy bluegrass with a jazz, gospel and blues twist. All three trained in the Piedmont banjo and fiddle musical tradition under Joe Thompson, who, at the age of 90, is believed to be the last living performer from the Piedmont string band heyday. Here they will doubtless preview their upcoming (third) album, 'Living Eden', due out in late February.
